Testimonials

Transmark Chile is the Chilean subsidiary of Transmark Renewables, a geothermal development company based in the Netherlands. From the beginning in 2010, PSO has provided Transmark Chile with professional back-office support, including payroll and accounting services and tax advice.  By engaging PSO we ensure compliance with local accounting and tax regulations and bring quality advice in-house.  PSO understands that the needs of a start-up company are constantly changing and the firm is flexible in offering a tailor-made work package.  PSO professionals are pro-active and trustworthy, working together as being part of the Transmark Chile team.

Pieter Vis, Project Manager - Transmark Renewables (Netherlands).

"Sodel is a medium-size Canadian manufacturer that arrived in Chile during 2006. Outsourcing our accounting through other service providers I came to realize that there were certain things missing that we found at PSO, namely, peace of mind, innovation, and the biggest asset, qualified advice. The Puente Sur team is in touch with the latest in modifications in Chile's tax law. They are not just doing a job, they are helping us with our growth."

Jean-Luc St-Pierre, President and CEO - Sodel Ltd. (Canada).

"PSO was fundamental to establishing structure and process in the founding and administration of KVA and provided assistance in getting the company registered. All KVA’s invoicing, accounting, tax management and company administration continues to be professionally managed by them. This allows KVA to focus on core business without the overhead burden for these supporting services. I would recommend Puente Sur to any small business like my own."

David Heugh, President - KVA S.A. (South Africa).

"As GM of a US-based company doing business in Chile for the last fifteen years, I outsourced Puente Sur to handle 100% of our accounting needs nearly ten years ago. Throughout my extensive history with Puente Sur, I am emphatically pleased with the professionalism and experience of its staff and its directors, with the timeliness and accuracy of the information provided pertaining not only to Chilean GAAP, but also Chilean labor law, customs issues and market information unique to our industry. Puente Sur has been and continues to be extremely reliable, trustworthy and necessary for us to thrive in the Chilean market as they have seen us through very tough times, and over the last several years we have grown exponentially all the while depending on their professional services."

Alex Kaminski, General Manager - Comercial Tysen Limitada (USA).

"The value added that we receive from Puente Sur stems primarily from their legal representation services. Having an investment abroad implies that in order to carry out an enormous quantity of local administrative tasks it is necessary to have people physically on the ground with residency to handle these issues."

Gonzalo Perazza, Regional Manager - Pielcolor (Spain).

"For me, PSO gives us more than an outsourced service. It is more like having another partner in my company that completely understands my needs and knows how to handle all of the details that are necessary to make a business successful. Their human capital is of the highest level: qualified, friendly, honorable, and goals-oriented. If Puente Sur were a bottle of wine I would rate it 'BEST VALUE'."

Laurent Telliet, Founding Partner - Premium Wines S.A. (France).

“WorleyParsons is a leading global provider of professional services to the resources and energy sectors and complex process industries. PSO is performing the accounting, payroll, and tax management functions for both our holding and operational companies in Chile. They have been very helpful from the point of company registration, during the start-up phase, and now with the maintenance and reporting of our monthly financials. For a small operation like ours, Puente Sur has been a perfect solution for our business needs.”

Curt Nylander, Vice President, Business Management - WorleyParsons (USA/Australia).

"Western Union is a global leader in money-transfer services. We first contracted PSO in 2006 to assist with our start-up in Chile, and have since relied on them for our on-going accounting, tax filing, payroll, and most importantly, our management reporting needs. On the reporting side we hold Puente Sur to comply with very strict formats and deadlines, and they have developed an excellent relationship with a number of our people outside of Chile who depend on these reports for consolidation purposes. As regards payroll, we have also relied on Puente Sur to comply with our strict confidentiality guidelines and procedures regarding documentation. Perhaps what we value most is in those times that we have provided constructive criticism, Puente Sur has responded energetically and professionally to ensuring that our needs are met over time. On many occasions they have gone above the call of duty to support not just our local staff but also our staff abroad involved in different aspects of the Chilean affiliate’s operations."

Jaime Darquea, Country Director Bolivia - Chile - Peru - Western Union (USA).
